I have 3 children that have been through the high school system in WJCC. My oldest son went to Jamestown, my youngest to Warhill and my middle daughter to Jamestown. She had a wonderful experience in her education, athletic career and social life. This high school was by far the best choice and as a teacher in WJCC, I am able to send my children to any school I choose.

Jamestown is an excellent school with great counselors and offering of classes. My son is taking many AP classes as a 10th grader but the school is very accomodating and supportive in offering options to further excel for the rest of the grades he has left in high school. School is safe and sports teams are competitive. The best school in WJCC system.

My third child is now attending Jamestown and loves it. The first two are both doing great at college. The teachers at Jamestown high are second to none and the student body is accepting to all.

My son had an absolutely amazing high school experience at JHS. The principal, who is now retires, was a classy, smart and attentive leader. With the exception of one teacher, the teachers are caring, smart, and there to help the kids. My son now attends a "public Ivy League" University and left JHS with 22 college credit hours, all of which were incredibly helpful with the exception AP US History and AP Human Geography both of which were easy classes, but just extremely poorly taught.

OK rating on test scores, but I would not send my child to this school. Parents are not contacted when problems arise between students - even when parents try to be involved. I was very surprised considering the nice area. Some of the teachers do not put the time in to helping students who request extra help after school. They suggest paying for a tutor. Lots of opportunity on paper. IMO - shady.

Attending Jamestown High School prepared me to excel in college. I had caring teachers who challenged me and an excellent guidance counselor who encouraged me take hard classes and try new electives like choir and journalism. Did I mention that they are also strong in sports and extracurriculars? JHS is a fantastic school that provides a quality education via caring teachers.

I find this school annoying and unsatisfactory in classes. Sure, it has a variety, but the teachers are ignorant and sit and do nothing while getting paid everything.

I just transferred to this school, and it is extremely easy compared to my previous school. Next year I am switching to a private school. I would recommend, if it is an option, to send your children there as well. Jamestown's teachers do not teach; they give. One must learn on their own, and some teachers are frustrated when asked questions. It really is not a great school. I am easily getting straight A's with hard courses, like intensified English and AP human.

JHS has a strong emphasis for college prep and AP classes. Teachers seem committed to ensuring student acedemic success with after school labs and stugy groups. Drama and Choir excel due to excellent department leadership.

Overall, an excellent school. Outstanding curriculum rivals that of a small college. Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) emphasize core courses. Outstanding atheletic programs - State Champs in Girls Basketball and Boys Swimming. Close to the College of William & Mary with some interaction. Great principal.
